Post Office, Pease Pottage

Mr Charles Songhurst ran the Pease Pottage post office during the early part of the Great War when a tented army camp was situated in the field just to the left of the picture. The shop would be well visited by the soldiers as they communicated frequently by letter and postcard with the family they left behind.
The Large Version link shows the soldiers enjoying some R & R before continuing their duties.
